He's risky. Pitchers tend to flame out while hitters are safer bets.
Pineda still needs development. He's not a finished product.
This worries me because the Yankees track record of developing starting pitching isn't good.
Pineda pitched in Safeco. Along with the rest of the AL West pitcher friendly parks.
His numbers will not be as good in smaller parks in the AL East.
Also he will be facing better lineups.
Agreed. Hughes and Joba haven't exactly blossomed under this regime.
